Look for the Fleur de Lis




When Sir Bienville found the spot to start a colony/
He impaled a flag at the crescent bend on the Mississippi/
And what were the words Bienville wrote informing the Company?/
The very same Sean Payton said to a kicker named Garrett Hartley./

Look for the Fleur de Lis! Look for the Fleur de Lis!/
That sign is our goal, the sign of our soul/
Look for the Fleur de Lis!/

Once you've been to New Orleans, you know it’s worth fighting for/
Such joy you'll feel to be alive -- your heart cries out for more/
We wear our hearts upon our sleeves for all the world to see/
Sewn on our flags, tattooed on our flesh, the mighty fleur de lis/

Look for the Fleur de Lis! Look for the Fleur de Lis!/
That sign is our goal, the sign of our soul/
Look for the Fleur de Lis!/

Many trials have shaken this land – fires and plagues and war/
and long she's suffered the struggles of man, the wealthy and the poor/
But the darkest days she ever saw, broke the hearts of men/
The hurricane that came and nearly brought with her the end..../

Look for the Fleur de Lis! Look for the Fleur de Lis!/
That sign is our goal, the sign of our soul/
Look for the Fleur de Lis!/

Against the odds and all advice we started to rebuild/
Our grief, our pride, our passion played upon the football field/
We dug in our heels, we flew our flags, we wore the black and gold/
In Brees, in Bush, in Deuce we trust to lead us to our goal/

Look for the Fleur de Lis! Look for the Fleur de Lis!/
That sign is our goal, the sign of our soul/
Look for the Fleur de Lis!/

That moment that the kick sailed through we shared the Victory/
God has blessed our city and now the world shall see!/
Clad together in black and gold we all know what it means/
to rally around Our faith, Our flag, Our Saints, Our New Orleans/

Look for the Fleur de Lis! Look for the Fleur de Lis!/
That sign is our goal, the sign of our soul/
Look for the Fleur de Lis!/

What were the words Bienville wrote informing the Company?/
The very same Sean Payton said, to a kicker named Garrett Hartley./
Tales will be told of a city so fair it's called the land of dreams/
And how her people united in the fight for New Orleans!/


Look for the Fleur de Lis is a song from the Who Dat nation!
